ICYMI, there’s a new coffee trend that’s slowly and surely gaining more traction, and it’s not only delicious, it also comes with a myriad of health benefits. Driven primarily by Mushroom Cups, Inc. a company founded by retired professional athlete and Croatian national basketball team player, Stipe Rezic, many claims that the mushroom-infused gourmet coffee trend has helped them gain more energy, become generally more positive and improved their overall wellbeing.
“As superfoods, mushrooms have a lot of health benefits to offer, and they’re all backed by science. What we’ve done here is take all the good stuff from different mushroom species and infused them into our organic, gourmet coffee, which science also says can be beneficial for individuals. The combination of the two gives us something that is naturally delicious and good for you,” shares Rezic.
Below is a list of benefits that Mushroom Cups’ coffee provide:
- Support for the Nervous System
Lion’s Mane, one of the mushrooms used by Mushroom Cups contains two very specific active compounds called hericerin and erinacine. Researches show that the two natural substances have the ability to easily cross the blood-brain barrier and stimulate nerve growth and help with regrowth of nerve cells. It’s also been proven to help protect against dementia and improve mild symptoms of anxiety and depression.
- Helps Reduces Risk of Heart Diseases
According to studies, Lion’s Mane also has the ability to help reduce risk of heart diseases by influencing major risk factors, including obesity and high triglycerides. In addition, researches also show that Lion’s Mane extract can help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
- Improves Focus, Memory, and Productivity
According to consumers of Mushroom Cups’ coffee, one of the most evident benefits they experienced is the ability to focus and stay focused on tasks at hand. In addition, many also experienced clarity of mind and enhanced memory after regular consumption of the product.
- Helps Reduce Blood Sugar Levels and is Anti-Inflammatory
You may not know it but chances are your body is suffering from multiple inflammations everyday. This is one of the reasons why many people report feeling bloated or experience all sorts of muscle pains. Chaga (also known as the mushroom of immortality), is known to provide effective anti-inflammatory effects, thus, even promoting weight loss. Oh! And it also helps reduce blood sugar levels!
- Helps Keep You Looking Radiantly Youthful and Healthy
Since we’ve already mentioned Chaga, did you know that this nutrient-dense superfood is also loaded with antioxidants. As we all know, antioxidants fight the decay of cells, and thus provide youth-boosting effects. Internally, it also helps support your immune system and even helps prevent cancer.
